BURT community transport

Bromsgrove Urban and Rural Transport (BURT) is a safe, secure service for residents of the district who are unable to use public transport.

You’ll need to register to make any journey within the boundary of Bromsgrove District in our wheelchair-accessible BURT minibus. Registration is easy and can be done over the phone or online. It can be used for

  • Getting to the shops
  • Visiting family and friends
  • Leisure
  • Medical appointments
  • Making a travel connection to somewhere outside the borough

BURT can pick you up from your home or wherever you specify from 8.45am, and the last set-down time at a destination is 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, subject to availability. At evenings and weekends we are hoping to start services for groups too – please let us know if you have any ideas for services you’d like to see.

It costs £2 or £1 for concessionary bus pass holders per single journey, plus 40p per mile payable in cash to the driver.

BURT should not be used for medical appointments where the journey is eligible for the NHS Patient Transport Service. Speak to your GP, Health Centre or Medical Consultant for information on Patient Transport eligibility.

Don't forget that if you are visiting Bromsgrove town you could also book a Shopmobility scooter or wheelchair to meet you when you get there.

They will not have to pay if their place has been pre-arranged with BURT.

72 hours notice will not be required if your journey is to a medical appointment, but the journey will be subject to availability and BURT should not be used for medical appointments where the journey is eligible for the NHS Patient Transport Service.
